Webinar roundup: From targeted sequencing to multimodal sequencing

A deep dive into targeted sequencing for cancer research

If you’re looking for novel or known variants associated with cancer, targeted sequencing is an efficient method of choice. By focusing on specific genomic regions of interest vs. the entire genome, you can increase sequencing depth and sample throughput while minimizing costs. However, coverage uniformity and bias can be critical challenges. How can you be sure you’ve identified a true variant or just stumbled upon an artifact? Did you miss rare variants due to coverage gaps?

Browse through our insightful webinars to get answers to these burning questions and enhance your technical know-how. Discover how QIAseq technology can introduce certainty and precision into your cancer research, ensuring you don’t miss those all-important low-frequency variants.

  • Identifying inherited risk factors of pancreatic cancer using targeted sequencing in a large cohort

Multiply insights with our multimodal sequencing webinars

Are you interested in profiling both DNA and RNA biomarkers but are short on sample and time? QIAseq Multimodal technology is the solution! Check out our webinars to discover how to maximize insights into multiple cancers from the same sample. Explore how our single-day multimodal workflow enables simultaneous interrogation of DNA variants, RNA fusions, tumor mutational burden (TMB) and microsatellite instability (MSI) from the same total nucleic acid sample.

  • Delivering high-confidence DNA variant, RNA fusion and TMB data through combined DNA variant and RNA fusion detection
    In this webinar, learn how to analyze DNA and RNA biomarkers and TMB from a single, low-input sample using a single workflow and in just a single day.
